About the Event
Craving some “Me” time?
Mothers' Day is such a special day. It's a day to be pampered and nurtured. It's lovely to receive that care and attention from others, but wouldn't it be lovely to treat yourself to an afternoon of self-care, so that you can ease yourself into feelings of peacefulness and rest.
If you love Yoga and you love to be pampered a little, you’re in for an afternoon of pure indulgence.
Never done Yoga before? No worries. This session is all about being gentle with yourself. The Yoga is slow, mindful and accessible. It's suitable for absolute beginners - for everybody and every body.
It brings me such joy to offer this Retreat...
time just for you...
the ultimate chill out experience to calm your mind and body as you unwind - allowing any stress or tension you're holding onto to float away in this restful, soothing mini retreat designed to restore and rebalance your body and rest your busy mind.
...so what can you expect?
Here in my beautiful studio in Wonga Park or Wonga Paradise, as I like to call it, overlooking the picturesque Yarra Valley, we’ll begin with a short journalling practice to set your intention for the day. You'll then be invited to follow a guided meditation and a slow yoga practice, bringing gentle movement into your body, to release any excess energy. With your mind calmed and centred, we will move into gentle Pranayama, bringing awareness to the breath.
We’ll then pause for a cuppa and an especially indulgent, yummy bite to eat before settling into a gentle and nourishing restorative yoga practice. Restorative yoga is a deeply restful practice, where your body and mind are invited to move into the state of ‘rest and digest’. With the support of bolsters, blocks and blankets you will explore various poses for extended periods of time, inviting your body to move into a place of deep rest.
Following the restorative practice, feeling deeply rested, we’ll move into a Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra, also known as “yogic sleep” is a beautiful practice of guided meditation taking you on a journey into your inner self. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional stillness.
The retreat will conclude with a short check in to ground and centre yourself before moving into your evening.
Through this nourishing combination of yoga, meditation, breath work and journalling, you will feel more clear, connected and ready to face the rest of the weekend and the week ahead.
Take this time for yourself.
Go deeper and explore a greater sense of peace and tranquillity within.
The Inner Peace Retreat is suitable for all ages and abilities. No previous experience is necessary.
All equipment will be provided - mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets... however if you prefer to use your own, you are very welcome to bring whatever you need.
The location of the Retreat will be provided on booking.
